Absolutely almost none. Assuming the aquarium is empty, you can use chlorine bleach to disinfect a really nasty tank. Put it on a level place a few inches above the ground, fill it with water, then add a bit of bleach. Drain it after about 24 hours, and use a nylon mesh to remove solid materials. You should appreciate the aquarium water level being above ground level when you syphon out the water. After the bleach, you should fill the tank with tap water and let it soak for another 24 hours. Rinse it a few times before setting it up. A good water conditioner will take care of left over chlorine.

That said, white (clear) vinegar is a safe alternative to chlorine bleach. You can also use it with water in a spray bottle to clean the outside surface of the glass.

To clean aquarium gravel, put it in a clean bucket and run a garden hose through the gravel until the water comes out clear.

Never expose an aquarium or anything in it to soap, solvents, cosmetics, poisons, etc.

Some pet stores sell "safe" aquarium cleaners and towelettes, but I would still be careful not to get any in the water. If the tank is empty, I would still give it a good rinse before filling it.

Always remember to let a previously empty tank cycle fully before adding fish. Note that this can take a month, it is not the 24 hours that some pet stores try to tell you, that's only to remove chlorine.

Mix half a cup of white vinegar with half litre of distilled water.

You can buy empty 'spray bottles' from many garden centres, and then fill with this solution.

Naturally once cleaned, rinse out the tank thoroughly, but this seems the suggested best option.

You need to be really careful about soap or solvent residues accumulating in the sealant or any other porous places. If the frost is from an alkaline buildup, you may be able to remove it with an acid solution. Vinegar is an acid, so you could put a few drops on the glass and see if it dissolves the buildup in a few minutes.

Stronger acids are, of course, more dangerous. Before using unsafe measures to clean the aquarium you may want to remember that used aquariums are really cheap at yard sales, etc. At one time PETCO had a dollar a gallon aquarium sale once a year.

Hello, I had a tank with the same problem in regards to calcium buildup, I bought it used for a great price. The solution that completely removed the buildup is to create a vinegar baking soda paste, just mix together enough so it can be applied like a paste (toothpaste consistency) to the offensive area, let it sit on the deposit for a few hours then rinse. Walla, should be gone, or nearly gone. Lee

My acrylic tank is pretty nasty right now but I dont have any bleach and I dont think hot water is doing the job. I do have a bottle of fantastik with bleach. Is that safe enough for the tank and my betta?
